The rapidly evolving Cambridge Crossing (CX) neighborhood is celebrating the opening of Lamplighter CX, a brewery and taproom, the newest addition to its vibrant ecosystem of restaurants, retail, and public spaces. Located at 110 North First Street in the heart of the neighborhood, the brewery joins a collection of locally curated retailers now open at CX. Lamplighter CX will be the brewery’s second location in East Cambridge and will be an urban destination brewery that not only offers Lamplighter the opportunity to increase production and taproom services, but to create an inclusive community space that provides friends, both old and new, to experience the local Cambridge flavor in a vibrant new place.
“Lamplighter is all about creating unique beers and great experiences; in looking for our second location, we wanted to be in a community that shares our creative spirit,” said Cayla Marvil, co-founder. “Being a part of Cambridge Crossing and its mix of local restaurant concepts, innovative companies, and abundance of outdoor spaces makes for a great setting. We’re really excited for our customers to experience this new taproom space among a dynamic new neighborhood.”
Lamplighter CX has over 6,000 square feet of taproom and production space on two levels of The Shed, an architecturally unique, standalone building which also features the restaurant trio The Lexington, Geppetto, and Café Beatrice by local restauranteur Will Gilson. The space will feature 16 beers on tap, a cheese and charcuterie board program, and a community-based event line-up including weekly trivia, happy hour yoga, and live music. The Shed sits amongst five of the 11 acres of open space within CX and features outdoor seating connected to the Picnic Grove and a central waterway.
“We aim to deliver a more meaningful connection to our local community and are thrilled to welcome Lamplighter CX which embodies the spirit of Cambridge broadly, focusing on community, innovation, and craft,” said Mark Roopenian, Managing Director at DivcoWest. “Joining other local retailers at the Shed, Lamplighter CX is another important point of connection for CX residents, neighbors, and commercial tenants alike.”… READ MORE.
